Deferred Compensation Committee

The records of the Deferred Compensation Committee date from 1984-1995 and consist of two cubic feet of material. Some records transferred to the State Archives were not retained because of privacy considerations, in particular, applications for emergency (early) withdrawal of funds which were attached to the minutes. Following the Nevada State Records Schedule RDA#1997016, they were disposed of in a secure manner. Only the Committee’s decisions on emergency withdrawals were retained as part of the official minutes.
